Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

My amp got very hot today. No smoke, but smelled like bleach, then like new plastic (like a new shower curtain). Seems to work, but it is still very warm to touch 15 mins after I shut the car off. Any ideas?

Well, an inadequate ground source (paint between the ring terminal and the ground metal) or just not a good place on the chasis that is grounded. Or you have the amp wired at a low ohm load. the lower ohm load that you have your amp wired at the hotter and more current it will draw from your vehicle. this basically means you may be overworking your amp... If it's improperly wired from the subs to the amp you will certainly fry your amp. Also another reason your amp can get hot is if the amp is underpowering your subs a lot... this also is incuded in overworking your amp... usually it will cause a lot of headlight dimming and that kind of stuff... Also if you have a lot of voltage drop in the vehicle like down in the 11 volt range when the subs hit it will cause your amplifier to heat up a lot...

I PUT UP A CURVED CURTAIN ROD. IT KEEP CUMMING OFF THE WALL


These rods need a little more support than a standard rod because of their shape. I'm assuming you used a plastic wall anchor in the gyproc or plaster. If so get rid of it and use a butterfly style anchor. The butterfly provides superior support and will allow to tighten the screws more tightly than with the plastic wall anchor. Good luck with your project and let me know if I can be of any further help.

No recall, Pour 2 cups of bleach into the washer, Wash on HOT water, long cycle. Then wipe seal with dry cloth. This will eliminate the mold smell... To stop it from coming back ALL front load washer doors MUST be left open to allow the rubber seal to dry, Just like you close your shower curtain so it doesn't get musty smelling... 2 hours is about the dry time... wiping the seal with a cloth usually helps too...

Where ever there's smoke, there's fire. This could be the multifunction switch arching and burning the lubrication in the assembly. Multifunction meaning, one switch that operates the turn signal wipers, cruise etc.

How to Install Shower Curtain


If you are going to use both a shower curtain and a shower liner, you have two options for installation. You can either use one rod and one set of rings, or you can use two rods and two sets of rings. If you used one rod, line up the liner and the curtain so they are facing one another and thread one ring through each of the corresponding grommets on the both the liner and the curtain. The curtain liner will move as one unit. If you use two rods, you need one set of rings for each, and the liner and the curtain will move independently.
